The 2020 Popcorn Sale has arrived!

Online sales are live now.  Simply go to www.trails-end.com and register for your Scout's personal online selling page.  If you signed up in previous years, just log-in and update your Scout's information.

Please see the attached online product offerings.

Let's talk for a moment about WHY we sell popcorn....

Every Scout should learn the value of hard work and earning their own way.  This is true now more than ever.  The annual popcorn sale is the perfect opportunity to teach this valuable life lesson and fund the most exciting year of Scouting ever.  In addition, fundraising helps the Pack bridge the budget gap between annual operating expenses and the money collected from each Scout's annual Pack Dues.

So what does your Scout get out of selling popcorn?

In addition to gaining self-confidence, salesmanship and communication skills, and a sense of accomplishment, 20% of each Scout's sales will go into a Scout account with the Pack for use on camping and event fees, pack dues, etc.  An additional 15% of all sales will go to the Pack for operating expenses.  This includes all online sales (currently) and take order sales (at a later date).  Prizes this year are all being offered as Amazon gift cards (see attached breakdown) so that Scouts can purchase exactly what they want.

Why Sell Online?

Selling online is the easiest, safest way for a Scout to sell.  Not only is there a greater variety of items available, online sales require no product handling (product ships direct to your customers) by the Scout or their parents!

I'm sold.  What do we do next?

First, register your Scout on www.trails-end.com for the sale.  Next, personalize their page with pictures, goals, and more.  Finally, begin selling by sharing your fundraising page via email, social media, and text message.  

Happy Selling!
